Risks and challenges

One of the challenges in presenting a locally-based theatre event such as Theatre Made In Boulder is generating the enthusiasm and support of the local community towards the development and performance of new work that is created right here at home.

It is very important to us that we create an event in which locally based playwrights will want to be participate. Moving forward, a challenge we face is continuing to make sure that we grow an event that is dynamic, inclusive and diverse. This will require that we continue our outreaching efforts to search for those playwrights and stories that need to be heard by our community. We will need to continue to nurture relationships with locally based organizations that foster the development of those who are interested in writing and presenting new plays.

There are many other reputable local theatre companies and events that utilize the talents of local artists, Theatre Made In Boulder is uniquely positioned because it strives to present locally written plays, produced and performed by locally-based artists.

Because our event aims to showcase new local plays that have not been produced before we understand that there are risks involved, including the perception of so-called “new work”. However, it is the mission of our entire production team to provide playwrights and locally-based artists with a space to present their work to an audience so that they can learn what works best for their play in performance and to also cultivate professional relationships so that they can continue to grow their work. We realize the risks of presenting work that is still in need of development and we are confident that Theatre Made In Boulder is uniquely positioned in this community because it is not based on the previous production merits of a play but rather encourages and supports the local theatre artist.

This may take time for our community to understand – that a play is in its very beginning stages. What is important to us is that we are able to be the “beginning stage” of that process. As our project grows, we aim to continue to include those playwrights, artists and workshop leaders from each year in order to grow a consortium of locally-based artists who continue to support each other in their creative process.
